"The Pimsleur Approach, ... boil[s] down the essential elements of a foreign language so that beginners can acquire basic skills immediately..."
Learning the local colloquial dialect before going to the Middle East was one of the best things I could have done. Over and over, I found myself silently thanking the language gods for Pimsleur's brilliant way of structuring the (Arabic) lessons.
"Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish while cooking all with NO WRITTEN MATERIALS!"
Thank you for your help and your promptness with this order. I love working with the CD's while driving in the car. I find the method totally enjoyable and easy to understand. It is a pleasure to learn Italian this way!

"Developed by Paul Pimsleur, an extremely well respected, internationally-known language expert. He developed a special way of learning a language which is all audio, the way we first learned our language as a child."
I took Pimsleur German on holiday with me in Barbados. I spent less than an hour every day for seven days. When I went to Frankfurt shortly afterwards, my colleagues were really astonished. So was I, to be honest!
